Although I’ve seen the asymmetrical collar and tunnel pocket combination a lot, I still think this Julia sweater by Erika is an original one! I love how she played with the pattern pieces at the back. By picking red fabric for the back sleeves, she added a new unique way to combine colours.
Hello, I’m Erika from Made by Akire I’m honored to be part of the Julia Sweater pattern tour. After I’d seen Marte’s first version of this sweater, I went looking for a patern with dolman sleeves for myself.
After I made one for myself, my daughter kept begging for one. So I ordered the pattern as soon as it was released. I asked my husband to print the A0 pattern so that I could start sewing right away. I made the version with the asymmetric collar and the tunnel pocket.
I combined a red knit fabric with a beautiful print one. I used the red fabric for the back of the sleeves, to obtain a more playful result.
Silke loves her Julia sweater so much. She already ordered another one! Off course she gets what she wants, because it’s such an easy and quick project. The pattern is just great! Thanks Marte! We’re looking forward to your next pattern.
Thanks a lot Erika for participating! When I see all these original fabric combinations, I’m sure that together with developing the women’s version, I would love to add a tutorial on how to create your own color blocks starting from the bass sweater option. I’m hoping to find time soon to experiment a little bit more with this project!
